Blaze Pizza Wants to Light Up Your Halloween – all locations
Definitely more of a treat than trick, the DIY chain is serving up a duo of specials for this holiday. For starters, free delivery is available through November 7, via Blaze Pizza’s app and website. In addition, if your box displays a secret message while held under a black light (Someone please tell us where to find a black light without buying one.) you’ll want to photograph your findings, tag @BlazePizza and hashtag #BlazeHalloweenSweeps for a chance to win some tasty delights. 10 folks will score a large pizza. One lucky soul will treat their crew to 10 large pizza pies. And lastly, one fool gets a large pizza delivered to them every week for a year! May the odds be ever in your favor. www.blazepizza.com.
